East Longmeadow agrees to MGM surrounding community agreement

East Longmeadow is the latest town to accept an MGM surrounding community agreement.

Members of the select board agreed to the proposal at a meeting tonight.

East Longmeadow will get $1.5 million from MGM to deal with the impact of a casino.

The deal can be increased once the casino is built if it turns out the money isn't enough. MGM is looking to build a resort casino in the south end of downtown Springfield.

Agawam and Ludlow were the first two communities to agree to a host agreement.
